Alright so I talked about brown mothers and aunties so wassup with brown dads? Besides cursing other divers out in a foreign language, brown dads are generally not as crazy as brown moms. REWIND!

First of all, there is never the “biggest” brown wedding ever, because if one of my family members have a big wedding, the next cousins will have a bigger and then the next cousin will have even bigger and it goes on… The fact that I decided to write a whole new post about it should mean that there...

Here I am, I got kicked out of the kitchen, did I tell you I have a Desi mother? I am inspired by mother’s words, translated “Get out of my kitchen, you keep putting to much garam masala in the CURRY!” -.- Well my day got better after hearing that so I decided to come here and write a post about why I love my mother. No seriously no matter how many times I tell her the chicken...
